Dozens of anti-Trump protesters gathered outside the White House on Thursday (November 10) to demonstrate against Republican Donald Trump's triumph over Democrat Hillary Clinton in a tight U.S. presidential election.
The largely anti-Trump crowd of about two hundred people stood outside the White House from early morning as U.S. President Barack Obama hosted President-elect Donald Trump to take the first public step in a transition of power after a bitterly fought election campaign that ended with the Republican businessman's surprise victory.
The crowd chanted anti-Trump songs while some carried signs that read "Not My President" and "Love Trumps Hate".
"Pain, hurt and more of this. A lot of pain, a lot of, I'm afraid I'm, afraid for my son, I'm afraid for the people that I know that are non-documented, I'm afraid for my cousins who got married," Said Marissa Valeri an anti-Trump protester at the event.
Thousands of people have been taking to the streets in at least 10 U.S. cities from Boston to Berkeley, California, chanting "not my president" and "no Trump," since Tuesday's White House upset.
Protesters cited a list of objections to Trump, including his campaign rhetoric critical of immigrants and Muslims, as well as allegations that he had sexually abused women and bragged about it.
Trump has denied those allegations.
A few miles away, an anti-Trump protester was arrested outside the Capitol Hill Club, where Trump met with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, after demonstrating and yelling expletives.
Civil rights groups and police reported an uptick in attacks on members of minority groups, in some cases carried out by people claiming to support Trump. There were also reports of Trump opponents lashing out violently against people carrying signs indicating support for Trump.
More anti-Trump demonstrations are planned heading into the weekend.
